The storyline of Overwatch

Overwatch is a tactical, competitive and intense action game that requires antics to get the best out of the game. Gamers acquire titles of a celebrated force that comprises oddities, scientists, adventurers and soldiers and then engage in battles in “near-future earth” battlegrounds. As aforementioned, there exists a diverse set of 21 heroic characters. Each of the 21 characters has a unique assortment of weaponry as well as extraordinary abilities.

It is all about accomplishing objectives, switching heroes on the move as well as bringing their powers together to bring an effect to the game. Filled with intense action, Overwatch calls for progressive teamwork so as to have massive fun.

The game gets more interesting 

Since BlizzCon 2015, Blizzard Entertainment has managed to soup up the game by introducing a number of features in the current closed beta test of Overwatch. For instance a new map type dubbed Control features a series of action and objective holding in places such as a Chinese metropolis, Nepal Mountains amongst other locations. As the gamer successfully progresses on, the new awarding system comprises Loot Boxes loaded with a collection of cosmetic stuff for personalization of the heroes.

With the newly introduced ‘Play vs. AI’ mode, players will also be able try out their grit against computer-controlled challengers. This adds to the existing ‘Quick Play’ mode where players are matched automatically with other online opponents and teammates having similar skills. These, among many others are all lined up in the much anticipated game.
